I love it so much and don't care if I ever get past a rating :D:D

Same here. I enjoy the whole process of quilting. Been at it for just over 10 years. Have a wonderful feeling when I finish a quilt. Favorite part is cutting the fabric, smile. I feel that I do a good job at what I do, smile. Get a wonderful feeling when I finish each and every quilt. Will not rate myself though.

By the standards of this board, I am awful.
BUT by my own standards - I'm terrific!
I do what I want, never follow patterns, and I'm very happy with the results -- even when they aren't what I expected. In fact, I never know what to expect to come out of my machine. It's always a surprise!

Been quilting about 26 years,I really can't rate myself because I still make mistakes.

I have been making and quilting since the 50's and still learn from people on the board. I have quilted over 200 quilts for other people and enjoy it.Have sold 100's of baby quilts and people always come back for more so I guess I am doing a pretty good job, I'll let them rate how I am doing.

I believe I rate myself lower than others would rate me. It's my type A inclination to do so. :)
